This episode of the Bradley Lecture Series podcast features Professor Samuel Huntington on his famous essay, “The Clash of Civilizations.”  In this lecture, given at AEI one year before the essay’s publication in Foreign Affairs, Huntington makes the case that the post-Cold War order is entering a new phase wherein conflicts will no longer be defined ideology or by economics.  Rather, conflicts will fundamentally be about culture and culture’s broadest level of identity short of what distinguished human beings from other species, civilization.  A quarter century after its initial release, Huntington’s ideas are being revisited and gaining new followers around the world.

This lecture was originally given on October 19, 1992. Full details can be found on the original event page here.
